The sixth annual Mustache Madness competition wrapped up on Wednesday with Rob Oppenheim taking the title by a whisker over runner-up Steve Friesen and Derek Fathauer at the Tour's Utah Championship presented by the Utah Sports Commission.

Four judges narrowed the competitors from 16 to 10 to 6. The final six were Oppenheim, Friesen, Fathauer, D.J. Brigman, Marty Caffey ( Tour player relations) and defending champion James Nitties.

Nitties, who had a question mark stenciled on his lower face, failed to make the cut for the final three this year. Judges apparently ruled that his submission was more questionable than question mark.

It appears the victory gave Oppenheim a boost this week. He carded a 6-under 65 in the first round to get into contention. Fathauer carded an opening 64.
